When homeschool students take college admission tests, they need to provide homeschool codes. Here are homeschool codes for tests all in one place for you:
SAT Homeschool Code is 970000
ACT Homeschool Code is 969999
PSAT Homeschool Codes Vary by State. Find your code here: Homeschool State Codes
The reason the PSAT codes vary by state is because the National Merit Scholarship is determined on a state-by-state basis. Homeschoolers are compared with other students within their state, not compared against the nation.
SAT Subject Tests Homeschool Code is 970-000.
PLAN (the pre-ACT test) Homeschool Code is 999-999
AP Test Homeschool Codes are provided by the test coordinator: ”Homeschooled students will use the state homeschool code provided by the Coordinator on the day of the exam.” See AP Exams for Homeschool Students. You may want to call the test administrator in advance, and tell them your homeschooled student is coming in for testing so they have the code ready.
Here is the good news – the test proctors will know the homeschool code! Don’t panic if you forget to write it down, because generally someone in charge can tell you what it is, or they will know how to find the information. Even so, it can put your mind at ease to have these homeschool codes handy!
It helps to use the homeschool code. Then the testing company will contact you directly with test results, instead of sending it to the high school and rely on them to give you the test results. For that reason, you may receive the scores weeks sooner when you use the homeschool code.
